I mean you gotta love Packie. He had the best missions. I think if Rockstar would've went that 3 protagonist at once route, it would've been Niko, Packie, and Jacob.

No. Niko was the perfect protagonist. Can't imagine anybody else.

No way.

Niko was the best example of a modern European immigrant coming to America for a better life, the theme that Rockstar created. And he is better character than Packie anyway.

I don't get the hype over Packie, he was alright, nothing special.

I liked Niko so I wouldn't replace him.

Packie should of had his own DLC like TLaD and TBoGT. I could see that being far more interesting then Johnny and Luis.

Replace Niko no. Both characters are great in their own way. I think in R* had of maybe did two protagonist ie Packie and Niko then it's be okay but it's hard to even imagine IV without Niko

I hate to admit it.. I hated Niko and wished that GTA 4 was based on TLAD confused.gif

But there's a certain charm about it with Niko as the protagonist..
So no...

Packie was lame anyway, one of my least favourite supporting characters aside from Roman in that game..

Hell no. Niko is my favourite protagonist. Also I don't understand why many people have problems with Niko being a protagonist. Niko, as a fresh off boat immigrant to America, has really shown the painful American Dream lie. I think Niko is the most realistic protagonist in GTA series and one of the most realistic protags of the gaming history.

With Packie replacing Niko, No man, thanks. Packie is my favourite supporting character but come on, Packie has no characteristic for being a protag. Yeah, Packie has a good sense of humor which all GTA protags have in some ways but mostly in other status, I can't say I would say "Yay!" for Packie being a protagonist.

As a trio, yeah. Not as a replacement for Niko.

Packie was a cool guy, but Niko was way more badass.

No, I love Niko and IV wouldn't have been the same without him.

However I think Rockstar should have done a DLC about Gordon Sargent and the Irish mob, with Packie featuring as a significant character.

Replace Trevor for Packie. Trevor doesn't fit the main GTA protaganist part, neither does Packie but Ill take him over Trevor any day...

I think they were going for the opposite extreme to Micheal there; rich "retired" guy vs. crazy violent maniac. Then Frunklin's the balance. I think this was said in the game at one point.

 

 

I think Packie would be pretty boring; all he ever seems to do is business. Instead of pulling jobs that have already been planned out by his contractors he seems to be more involved with the actual planning out and cleaning up, and that would make for a pretty boring series of missions.

 

Having the protagonist being gang-affiliated in GTA (and not having a huge in-gang conflict) would be pretty boring. The McReary boys are small-time, and there wasn't really much going for them by the end of IV. Nothing too exciting going on in the organization either, just a family making some cash here-and-there.

Nah. He's okay, but I don't get all the love for him.

 

Plus, he's always a dick to me off mission. He'll call me and ask to play pool with him, I'll say sure and pick him up. Every single time I pick him up he says, "For f*ck's sake, Niko! If you were any later I would have shot you!" and the thumbs down icon appears in the corner.

Not in the main game, no.  Having a spin off with Packie and his brothers rather than the lost would have been a better move.

No, not really. He was indeed a great character. A good solid friend to Niko Bellic, but he wasn't protagonist material. It was good to see him make a brief appearance in GTA V. I'm glad he came back.

Even though Packie was my favourite of the supporting cast, I'd still have to say no. Given his position in a deeply struggling Irish Mob, the story would have been one dimensional and restricted in comparison to IV's story. Not to mention, Niko is my favourite GTA protagonist.

Nah, Niko was a pretty good character who I ended up being severely attatched to at one stage in my sad life lol. Maybe if they added Packie to Liberty City Stories as the third spin off it would've been interesting...
